Well Hello There

Cricket….cricket…..that has been the sound, or lack there of on here the past few months. Remember when I said I would be better about posting consistently? yeaaaah….sorry about it. The truth is I’ve been feeling stuck. I finished my first semester back at school and it was an experience. It was quite a lesson in…

Things I Don’t Understand

This has been a hard week. Actually it’s been a hard month. Lots of learning, both in school and in life. I’m still trying to find a balance and it’s been kicking my butt this week. I have cried myself to sleep to many nights to count this week. I think partly due to school…

Am I Really Doing This Again??

Ok I might have had a mini breakdown over the weekend…no I definitely did. Here’s the thing, I’m a mess. I’m constantly changing my mind, always dreaming, and finding what I like and don’t like, what I do and don’t want to do. I’m either laughing or crying, usually happy tears. I fantasize certain areas…

An Ode To My Life

Life, life where have you gone? You’ve left me, forsaken me, hung me to dry.  In place of hangouts and recreational fun you given me books and homework and flash cards galore. Life, life what are you now? But lecture notes, lab slides, emails and study guides I abhor.  The fleeting memories I cling to…

People Watching Is My FAVORITE!

So I started taking some classes at my local Community College and what a trip it’s been. If you have never attended Community College before please allow me to inform you of the spectacular sites you might behold. * Please keep in mind that maybe this is only my CC. And that this is my…

A Year In Review

New year, new me. Just kidding new year same me, you can breathe a sigh of relief.  I am not sure where to start, 2014 went by so fast yet when I think about any specific event that happened during the year it feels like years ago. How can 365 days pass by in a…

The Change

It’s happening, I’m going through the change …menopause. Just kidding I’m 23 (but according to my 13 year old sister I had better “hurry up and get married because your going to start menopause soon” the amount of strength it took to not poke her in the eyes was impressive) . BUT there have been…

Birthdays

Maybe it’s just me but as I get older the “magic” of birthdays has all but disappeared. My birthday used to be my favorite day of the year. A day all about me?! Finally the world gives me my rightful place, at the center of attention! (Can you tell what kind of kid I was?) I…

Joyful Living

I was sitting in my car the other day with a smile creeping across my face. At first I didn’t know it was there and once I noticed it I couldn’t pin point its origin. So I sat there trying to figure it out, and then I started laughing. It started as a light giggle…

Thoughts From The Little Brown Book: Dry Hallelujah

When my Hallelujah is dry and my voice is weak, I look for answers I’ll never know desperately seeking the comfort of hope. Even here I crave your breath, to fill and restore when a dry Hallelujah is all I have left.   While flipping through my book I came across this little poem thing….

Insanity

I’m talking about the workout video. The one with that super buff black guy. The one with all the horror stories of people passing out and throwing up the first time they tried it. The one that you have probably seen  advertised at 2:30 am when you couldn’t sleep and have taken to eating an entire costco…

Thoughts From The Little Brown Book: Surrender

In the 2 years that I spent thinking about starting this blog I worked my way through a couple journals. Most of them filled with notes and drawings, and every so often I would write something and think “I will post this to my blog soon”. Look at me now, makin things happen.  I will…
